Teacher Gifts: Personalized Chalkboard Doors

As we prepared to leave San Antonio, I knew I wanted to make something for all four of the kid's preschool teachers.  My kids were blessed to attend a wonderful preschool with loving teachers and we will miss them greatly.

For Kate's teachers (whom Drew also had last year), I decided to make chalkboard cabinet doors.  Perfect for a teacher, functional, and something to always remember us by!


I wanted to keep things neutral.  I used paints from my stash, including a mocha brown and a charcoal grey.  I trimmed them out in a stark white to coordinate with the monogrammed knob (Hobby Lobby). 



I then tied a piece of dustless chalk to the knob (with twine) and wrapped with a bow (meant to be a going away gift/Christmas gift).



I found the knobs on clearance for $0.81 and the doors cost me $3.  Adding the chalk, paint, and bow, and you are looking at just under $5 each!  More to come on Drew's teacher gifts in a future post!
